Raury heralds from Georgia, but it’s possible most folks recognize the name from a video premiere on Vice’s Noisey blog, which rose the profile of this wunderkind. The 17-year-old rapper- songwriter behind Raury, whose music is stunningly innovative R&B in a time when that’s really saying something, also gave the site a candid interview, citing Kid Cudi and Andre 3000 as obvious influences. There are only a few songs out in the ether at this juncture, which injects a little mystery into Raury’s upcoming show at the Social. Based on the throbbing intrigue of “God’s Whisper,” we’re curious to hear more, especially since the emotive visu- als associated with the act suggest there is much more beneath the surface. We’ll definitely be following beyond the beaten path to one of Orlando’s best indie clubs. Is The Indigo Child the savior? We’ll see. For now, check out indigochildproject.com to play the side-scrolling game and learn more about Raury.

RAURY 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 12 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org | $12-$45
